Default Catamaran Refit Episode 5 - Watermaker Rebuild and Solar Panels

I'm happy to announce that this will be my last video in the "refit" series that I've been making for the past year. The next video I make will be the "splash" video and then on to the fun stuff - the sailing videos! I hope you've enjoyed watching us refit our 42' Venezia catamaran, but it is time to finally splash this boat and start enjoying some of the fruits of our labor.

This video details the complete rebuild of our 12 volt watermaker - a new motor, new TDS meter, and new low pressure pump - and then, how we put it all together. We also install three 280 watt solar panels and an MPPT controller.

Not far to go now, time to put the bubbly on ice. :-)
